For 250 years my family has called Southern Louisiana home.
Descended from both the French Acadian and Spanish Islanos colonists. Both families settled on the bayous of South Louisiana that are now known as Donaldsonville located 60 miles south of New Orleans.
250 years later we are still here in Southern Louisiana. The first 150 years they lived off the land in the bayous. 100 years ago they migrated to the city of New Orleans where they Americanized and learned to speak English.
I love this city and enjoy attending lectures on the history, architecture, and culture of this region. I'm especially inspired by new historians that are researching topics unveiling the day to day life of the colonist, adventurers and others that are drawn to this unique way of living then and now.
Live music, festivals, Jazzfest and Mardi Gras and all that is New Orleans, I'm usually in that number!
A Recent Review of this guide
Nancy was beyond incredible in every way. Her knowledge and love of New Orleans made the trip so special. We walked the French Quarter and drove to spots throughout the city, learning what makes it unique. Nancy customized our tour for our family of four and catered to our interests (history, music, food, culture). She's entertaining and full of enthusiasm and interesting facts and stories. I wish we could've done a second day with her! She was exceptional. I highly recommend Nancy to show you around!
